A Sol-fa Song and Activities (Ages 3-7)

Here’s a song with which to step the beat, sing a do-mi-so tune to tonic sol-fa and lyrics and improvise 3-note tunes and accompaniments. “The Grand Old Duke of York’s Soldier” is one of two tunes included in the “Marching” grid (a grid is like a mini-app) from our software “GridPlay: Creative Explorations Level 1. (See the YouTube video below) This song can now be found on our updated ‘Kids’ Pages‘ with audio playback.

“What a grumpy soldier, I,
Tired of marching – me, oh my!
Up the hill and then march down,
Marching all the way to town.
